Deboxing: The L’Arc~en~Ciel x Pinky: St. Larpin

And now, more stuff from my toy box: the L’Arc~en~Ciel x Pinky: St. collaboration mini-figure set. Also called Larpin, these stylized L’Arc~en~Ciel figures done in classic Baby Sue (Kanaya Yuki) style are highly sought-after collectibles, especially to me since I collect both Pinky:St. and Larc merch.

I had this set shipped in from a friend in Japan, and although they are pricey they were well worth the money. As you can see from the photos, the set of four band members — Hyde, Ken, Tetsu, and Yuki are all present.

Each figure is given accessories that suit their band positions: a mike for Hyde, a guitar for Ken, a bass guitar for Tetsu, and a pair of drum sticks for Yuki. All four band members are also given custom wristbands that each person designed for himself — so that’s pretty sweet. Last but not least, Ken has an actual guitar pick that you can use for yourself.

As for the cons — I guess the price would be the top deterrent for people who want to score these figures. Also, because they are collectibles rather than toys, they would be a bit hard to play with. Losing such small parts is a major bummer, and with the price tag replacing them could be out of the question.

All in all — great for collectors, not so much for casual fans. See you all in HK for the concert in March!

    As Fritz would say, “You already!” So badly want one because it’s L’arc and Pinky in one. You corrupted me, I swear. 😀

    I’m not confident that these will be sold at the HK concert as it seems to be a Japan only merch. But if it’s available… let’s just say pag may nakita kang nag wawala sa concert grounds it just might be me LOL.
